Tampa Bay Rays Close To Signing Jeff Keppinger

The Tampa Bay Rays are close to signing infielder Jeff Keppinger, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. This follows the rumors from Monday (via Jerry Crasnick) that the club was interested in acquiring him for infield utility purposes.

Keppinger, 31, is a career .281 hitter and the Rays would make his 8th club. As noted, he's a utility infielder but spent all 93 games in 2011 at 2B.
